Move an App
First, locate an app on your Home Screen you would like to move. Press and hold down the app. In my example, I am wanting to move the Kim Komando app. Refer to below image:
Next, tap the Remove App option from the pop-up context menu. See below image:
Your iPhone will display a message asking if you want to move the selected app to the App Library or delete it. Just select the Move to App Library. See following image:
Use Alphabetical List
The app will now disappear from your Home Screen. Now, swipe over to the right-most Home Screen page, or press on the Dots Bar at bottom of screen and swipe; to view your App Library. You can find the app that you moved in one of the automatically-generated groupings, or by tapping on the App Library Search bar, or by tapping on a letter in the alphabetical list of installed apps. Refer to below image for searching by the alphabetical list:
Use Search Bar
You may start typing into the App Library Search Bar the first couple of letters of the app’s name to find it. See below image in locating the Kim Komando app:
Launch the App
Once you have found the app, just tap it to launch the app. See following image for my Kim Komando app in the Suggestions library:
For now, Apple doesn’t allow you to create your own groups or to decide which app should go in which group. Hopefully, Apple will improve the feature over the coming months.
